Silver Falls and Waterfall Wednesday

Silver Falls is the secondary attraction within, Golden and Silver Falls State Natural Area. A hidden gem in the dense coastal forests of southwest Oregon may be hard to find, but it’s well worth the 24-mile drive from Highway 101. The falls was measured to stand 259 feet tall, which makes it among the tallest waterfalls west of the Willamette River in Oregon. This falls is not to be confused with the many falls in Silver Falls State Park.

In the winter and early spring months a considerable volume of water thunders over this impressive waterfall. but come summer the stream is reduced to just a trickle.  In a drought summer it may be possible for the falls to run entirely dry (this would likely be a very rare and short-lived occurrence

It’s possible to drive the entire Pacific Coast Scenic Byway in a single day. But why would you when you have 5 member inns of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild from Ocean Side to Port Orford? Take a few days, take a few side trips and enjoy the ride. Golden and Silver Falls State Park is 25 miles NE of Coos Bay, Oregon.
